Vision Therapy

Our experienced developmental optometrists offer specialized functional vision evaluations at our Northfield Optometry office. We carefully evaluate how the eyes work together, focus, track, and process visual information, allowing us to diagnose and treat complex vision conditions often overlooked by traditional eye exams. We go far beyond glasses and contacts to help patients, offering highly customized therapy programs that build and strengthen the neuro-vision pathways between the brain and eyes. We look forward to helping you and your loved ones achieve their goals, whether they are to improve reading and learning, reduce dizziness, recover from a head injury, improve development in a special needs child, or treat a wandering eye.

Vision therapy is a series of doctor directed eye exercises that improve how the eyes work together, track, focus, and process visual information. Someone can pass a vision screening, but still struggle with poor hand-eye coordination, reading problems, attention, strabismus, convergence insufficiency, and amblyopia —all of which can be effectively addressed through vision therapy.

We also proudly serve the neighboring cities of Glenview, Wilmette, Winnetka, Northbrook, Glencoe, Kenilworth, Skokie, Niles, Deerfield, Evanston, Highland Park, Morton Grove, and Chicago.
